The estate of British pop singer and Wham! Superstar George Michael is auctioning 200 works from his private art collection at Christie’s in London next month.
There are a number of YBA artworks, a commissioned portrait by Michael Craig-Martin and countless 1990s artworks. The prices will range from $500 to $1.9m.
“The art collection of George Michael reflects the friendships built between one of the U.K.’s most acclaimed musical artists and the visual artists who were creating artworks at a seminal moment in British cultural history,” Michael’s trustees said in a statement.
“Philanthropic work was hugely important for George during his lifetime and it was his wish that this work would continue after his passing.”
